For a night out (all of these movies will be released on Feb. 13)
50 Shades of Grey: Should make for a memorable evening, but pick your date carefully.
Love, Rosie: This is the movie you bring your platonic male friend to, when you want to take it to the next level.
The Last Five Years: From the filmmakers behind P.S. I Love You, but this one’s a musical — with swearing.
For a night in
Casablanca: The obvious choice but for good reason. Play it again, Sam.
When Harry Met Sally: At this point you probably only remember the diner scene. But the rest of it is pretty good, too.
Date Night: Tina Fey and Steve Carell’s marriage is so strong even Mark Wahlberg can’t break them up.
For a night on your own (with a box of tissues)
An Officer and a Gentleman: The ultimate man-in-uniform flick — with a wickedly romantic ending.
The Notebook: This one’s a real tearjerker, partly because you’re never going to share a ferris wheel ride with Ryan Gosling.
The Fault in our Stars: They’re young, they’re sick and they’re heading to Amsterdam. What could possibly go wrong?
For a night with the girls
Breakfast at Tiffany’s: Shake up some martinis, put on a string of pearls and plan your next girls’ trip to New York City.
Bridget Jones’ Diary: Break yourselves into two groups: Team Daniel Cleaver and Team Mark Darcy. Discuss.
The Other Woman: If your group of gals happens to be single, bitter or recently burned, this is your pick.
For a family night
Lady and the Tramp: Be warned, you’re exposing the kids to some bad table manners.
Shrek: What better Valentine’s Day lesson than that good guys finish first — even green ones.
The Princess Bride: Come for the love story, stay for the sword fighting. (Not to mention the note-perfect writing.)
For people too cool for Valentine’s Day
Lost in Translation: Dreamy, romantic and funny. But in no way sappy.
Annie Hall: Watch a great love story without feeling like you’re part of the consumer holiday.
Jesse and Celeste Forever: No one’s buying Andy Samberg as a romantic lead — and this movie gets that. Spoiler alert: There’s no happily ever after.
